Sky Solar has named Amy Zhang, Suntech’s former CFO, as its new CEO and executive director, succeeding founder and chairman Weili Su, who will focus on company’s strategic development and promoting its advanced technologies.

Prior to joining Sky Solar, Amy held senior management roles at several international companies, including Deloitte (China), Philips (China) Group and Suntech Solar Power. After leaving Suntech, Amy was courted by several prospective companies before eventually choosing Sky Solar. When mentioned, Amy said, “The reason that I chose Sky Solar, joined its global PV plant development, and financing and asset management, and take the most challengeable business in the industry, is because of Sky Solar and Mr Su’s long-term commitment in financing and developing of end-users’ PV plants, as well as its excellent and innovative business pattern and global strategic structure. I look forward to working with Sky Solar’s team for the company’s future in this emerging industry.”

Weili Su, chairman of Sky Solar said, “We are pleased to have Amy Zhang as our new CEO. The board are impressed by her personal qualities, her experiences in the financing and investments, business acquisition, and supply chains, and her professional background in finance. We are sure she will lead the company to a whole new future.”

One of the company’s targets is to become an investor and developer of renewable power projects, and Amy’s professional background is ideal to this aim, according to the company.

Sky Solar announced at this year’s SNEC Shanghai that it is moving its global headquarters from Beijing to Shanghai, with Sky Solar Investment’s Angela Huang taking on the role of president. The move is set to be completed shortly.
